Wigan Athletic FC 1-1 Rubin Kazan highlights: English Championship side, Wigan Athletic still showing their competitiveness in the latest Europa League group stage fixture as they bagged a point against strong Russian side, Rubin Kazan on Thursday.
Playing in front of their home crowd, Wigan were looking to dish out another special performance that midweek as they're keen on competing for top spot in group D against their direct rival. However, instead of taking the lead, the host found themselves trailing after just 15 minutes of play as Rubin went up through Alexander Prudnikov's effort. That early strike triggered positive response from the home side as they eventually got back on level terms, five minutes before half time break with an effort from Nick Powell.
Despite both teams' strong effort in searching for more goals in the second half, none of them were successful on their quest as up till the final whistle was blown, the score line was still 1-1. That result still put Rubin topping their group with two points above Wigan in second place.
